Heard that they were under new mamagement and had gone back to original reciepes; not the case especially with donuts. I was very disappointed. The donuts were dry and gummy. Only the top glaze was the same. It's ashame because this bakery is an icon in Crowley. The building is the same but what happened to the pastries? Brownies thin... More

After my last review 3 years ago, I decided to drop by and once again, got disappointed! :( I was told that the donut recipe is "new & improved"....somebody lied! I give honest reviews on every one I write; good, bad, or indifferent. I couldn't go by word of mouth so I had to try the "new" donuts for myself.... More

The old Ruddock's donuts are back! They are awesome. Large with a good sugar coating. They're even fresh the next day without having to run them through a microwave.

Friendly service and the donuts have been delicious for decades. Cakes are great. Many people like chocolate covered donuts but I prefer plain.

Ruddocks is without a doubt one of the two top doughnut stores in Crowley, LA. The rolls, pies, cookies and pastries are made fresh and are usually warm when purchased. Flavor packed!

There's very little here that wouldn't appeal to me admittedly! Their sweet dough pies, cookies and doughnuts are especially delicious!!!

The food is NEVER fresh. The brownies are obviously left overs with hard icing. As I'm sure there are other items that are left over as well. The workers are the best thing about this place. However, I wish I had lived in Crowley when this place was just born.

This bakery has not changed at all in 65 years! The creme puffs are in exactly the same location in the display case they were in then. And every bit as good. How do they do that? Every time I walk in the door, everyone working there and all the customers start up a conversation. You'll make some friends, have... More
